This campground is a Corps of Engineers campground. As you drive in you are greeted by a toll booth building where you can either pick up your car tag or the attendant can give you a map with open sites. You must book the sites online through the recreation.gov website. The gates to this campground close at 10 pm & reopen at 6 am. In emergencies between 10 pm & 6 am you can exit the campground but can not re-enter as there are tire spikes. Check in time is stated as 6 pm and check out is 4 pm; however, we checked in around 3 pm.
There are 3 sections to this campground: west, central, & east. The central campground appeared to be the most updated with wide, concrete spaces. Trees are abundant here and provide nice shade, but be mindful of falling branches. All sites have electricity 30/50 amp. Some sites have water located on site, some have water located about 40 ft away (bring extra water hoses), and some have no water. No sewers in any sites, but there are dump stations located within the campground.
The campground has several bathhouses and vault toilets. I did not tour any of the women’s bathrooms but my husband said the men’s was dirty and the toilet would not flush.
There are two playgrounds for children and lots of sandy beach areas to swim in and set up lawn chairs, etc... The campground also has a boat ramp and courtesy dock.
We camped on site C58. The site was wide, clean, and has a concrete pad. It was well spaced from other campers and had a nice lake view even though we weren’t directly on the lake.
Pros: •Lake Eufaula access •Sites directly on the lake or short walking distance •Gated campground •Has a variety of sites and able to accommodate big rv’s •Concrete pad sites
